Soapy Tales

The young men at St. Augustine Youth Services, a foster care home, are required to leave at 18. These young men were headed for minimum wage and an entry-level life. We help them find a fresh start in a bar of soap. Flagler Enactus challenges the boys by starting an eco-friendly soap company, Soapy Tales.

Running a soap business taught them that it takes teamwork, discipline and determination to succeed. The young men are now in control of their lives and are able to make the transition from the group home to independent living. Visit this unique business at soapytales.com.

 

 

Dominican Wave

In 2016, Soapy Tales became a tale of two cities. Flagler College Enactus partnered with the Dominican Development Group (DDG) to bring Soapy Tales to the town of San Marcos in the Dominican Republic. The DDG is a unique mission organization within the Episcopal Church that works with economically depressed communities in the DR. Executive Director, Bill Kunkle, has been working closely with the community of San Marcos for 6 years. Soap making is easy to learn, has low startup costs, and would create income for this struggling community.  In June 2017, two members of Flagler College Enactus traveled to the Dominican Republic to establish the business, Dominican Wave, and began production. Flagler Enactus alum Chelsea Reppin has since remained in the D.R. to develop the business full-time. This business is already been running past its first year and we are excited to continue working on the non-profit as it transitions into its second year of business.  https://www.dominicanwave.com/our-roots/ 

 

Split Space

St. Augustine is a community heavily dependent on local businesses. When Hurricane Matthew, a category 3 storm, hit the coast of Florida, many businesses were flooded and forced to leave their retail location. Our solution was to create SplitSpace, a simple way to find space for business owners to see their products, mutually benefitting both space sharers. Our focus is to help businesses and entrepreneurs find space, and encourage them to collaborate with others to grow their brand. We offer listings completely free of charge so you can further your resources. Our easy-to-use website (which is still in development) ensures you find what you need in an efficient way. Soon we will be working with our local chamber of commerce on creating a platform for this online business.

 

C.R.O.P 

The College Reach Out Program is designed to increase the number of educational and economically disadvantaged high school and middle school students who will enroll in college upon graduation from high school. The CROP program is a way to learn and grow with the community that surrounds St. Augustine. Students from many areas of life will be able to open up and be mentored by our team to help there passion and dreams become a reality. This specially selected group of students will grow in a controlled group or activity and learn the importance of responsibility, management, business, leadership and so much more. We are proud to serve these students and say we are making a difference and increasing GPA’s, graduation rates, and decrease academic truancy in school.

 

Yellow Crate

Flagler College is committed to helping the social, economic, and environmental welfare of our community. We are currently working with John Brown University on expanding their project, Yellow Crate. Yellow Crate’s goal is to connect local food pantries with grocery shoppers. Yellow Crate is an app that tallows food pantry administrators to build lists of their needs which is communicated to the app users while at a participating grocery store. The app gives the opportunity to tailor nations specifically to each individual food pantry. We use a bluetooth device called an iBeacon that send notifications when the app user is within a certain distance of this iBeacon, which is house inside the yellow crate cardboard box that is placed at the grocery store itself. Download today and contact us for more information on what grocery stores are following this policy

 

Flagler’s Legacy

15 years ago Flagler Enactus’ first project was Flagler’s Legacy, a tour business on our historic campus. These tours grew into 2 retail stores and an online business operated by 28 students an growing. It serves as a living classroom for our community and as a model for many of our other projects. It has cumulative sales of 5 million dollars, and serves over 70,000 visitors annually. A tourism impact study found that Flagler’s Legacy added 15.2 million dollars to the St. Augustine economy. Today, we continue to integrate our other programs into the store by utilizing it space and resources on a daily basis to house a fundamental place of learning.
